Not possible without additional hardware. What you’d need is a HDMI grabber, like these. Of course, whether the latency induced by such a device would still be acceptable is yet another issue.

  • what do you mean there is no actual way to change the the display source of the laptop to the hdmi, with out any additional external hardware?

    That’s right. All your laptop’s display connectors are outputs. That means they will not accept any incoming image data.
